|Steel Type||Stainless Steel|

|Cutting Edge Length||"|
The serrated edge of this bread knife is polished and ground into the blade by hand, providing smooth and precise cutting feel. The cherry handle is also hand-shaped and sanded to fit comfortably in your hand. This shape of bread knife comes from the silhouette of Windmühlenmesser bread knives from the '20s.
Robert Herder Windmühlenmesser knives are made in Solingen, Germany, and are still utilizing old hand-work techniques. Their fine, hand-ground blades are extremely light and thin and offer a great cutting feel that is not possible with chunky, mechanized-ground blades. There is no excess steel on the blades, making them lightweight and thin, and the slight convexity makes for reduced friction and sticking during cutting. Windmühlenmesser has worked hard to establish an extensive apprenticeship program at their workshop, preserving old techniques that have nearly disappeared from Solingen.
